    1. "We will go far beyond mere happiness in our Christian life, but our true purpose on this earth is obedience and sanctification, not personal gratification." Contrast this statement from Charles Colson's Lies That Go Unchallenged in Popular Culture with Piper's statement that "The pursuit of pleasure is not optional. It is essential."I reject the concept of Christian hedonism which is most likely the reason why I didn't get very far with this book. It represents popular culture's obsession with [...]

    2. I love this book. The primary message is this: not only is it our chief end as humans to desire God and enjoy Him forever, but is it God's chief end to glorify himself and enjoy himself forever. This book has been instrumental for me in understanding God's justice & mercy and how they play out perfectly together for his gloryeven when it's hard to see or understand. I strongly recommend this book as a foundational read for anyone who struggles with questions like: "why is the universe the wa [...]

    3. John Piper exerts tremendous influence over the hearts, minds, careers, and relationships of some of my dearest friends. Desiring God: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist, in particular, stands as a turning point in many of their stories of following Jesus.I haven't been a fan of Piper. There was a point in the mid-2000s when I didn't mind hearing one of his sermons now and again, but his fierce rhetoric on gender relations and his assumed ability to name who's in and out of God's family and God [...]

    4. I read this book. I enjoyed it. It challenged me. But, i came away feeling like i was missing something on what all the fuss was about i felt like i failed to get it somehow

    5. Desiring God is a book devoted to helping readers find their happiness in God. The theme is that "God is most glorified in me when I am most satisfied in him." Dr. Piper carefully builds his case for this concept and calls it Christian hedonism. The issue for the Christian is one of desire. Will one feast on the pleasures of sin or will he run to the streams that God offers and drink from his delights.Christian hedonism is really a philosophy of life that is driven by five convictions. 1) The lo [...]

    6. This one got to me, and I sort of expected it to. I had high expectations, actually, because Piper has developed a strong reputation as sort of a C.S. Lewis in a post-modern society. That's not to say HE'S post-modern--far from it--I'm just using that term to indicate how relevant he is. And there could not be a more accurate title for this book. It really is about what it means and sometimes what it TAKES to desire God. While this is a discussion of Christian Hedonism--a term I think Piper can [...]

    7. This book is key to understanding John Piper and his perspective on life, God, and anything else. I read the ten-year anniversary edition, which was well done, especially with the new chapter about suffering and the overly cute but effective poem that illustrates Christian Hedonism with Piper's thoughts about his wife on their anniversary.Desiring God boils down to what is kind of a life motto for Piper: God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him. Piper also gets a great deal [...]

    8. I like Piper's overall point, but I'm not sure this book needed to be quite so long. Granted, I was already in agreement with Piper (after all, as Joey Tribbiani once said, there is no such thing as a truly selfless act--the only reason people do anything is, on some level, because they see it as somehow being in their own self interest) and thus was not a tough sell, but it still seems like Piper could have made his point in fewer than 300 pages (plus another 150 pages of appendices).Still, I a [...]

    9. Before reading this book, I had become a Christian, but I was still working through this terrible thinking I had that the Christian life was supposed to be boring because what's right is always less fun than what's wrong. This is the first place I encountered the thought that the Christian life was about joy, the greatest joy that a person could have. That's a transformational thought, and for anyone who needs to hear it, this book is for you. It is dense and long, but I would say it is worth th [...]

    10. Reading Piper certainly makes me want to read John Owen again to get at a real Puritan sermon. This is a faux Puritan sermon - argumentative without charity, superficial in its use of Scripture and other quotations, and restless in its attempt to be comprehensive, while missing real depth of Scriptural insight. Owen trusted the Word had power, and did not rely on silly, oxymoronic, and attention getting home-made phrases like Christian Hedonism. Owen and Jonathan Edwards understood that the affe [...]

    11. On re-reading, this book is better than I remembered. My usual thought about Piper books is that they're ~100 pages longer than they need to be, and that he's a vastly better speaker than he is writer. I still maintain that last point, but I'm not sure I still think this book is too long. Of course, I also didn't read the Appendices, so there's thatOverall, this is an excellent book and one that the modern church needs to keep going back to. I suspect that if Piper were to rewrite it today, he w [...]

    12. This is one of the most gnostic treatments of so-called Christian Hedonism that I have ever read. Throughout the book you will be hard pressed to find much of anything on enjoying God through the physical pleasures He has given us to enjoy. Nothing on enjoying good beer. Good food. Good sex in marriage. You end up at the end of the book trying to turn to your own little heart to find your pleasure in God. Read Doug Jones' article in C/A called Wine, Women, and Sabbath if you want a more biblical [...]

    13. Outside of God's word this is hands down my favorite book and a main stay on my night stand!! Piper is ALWAYS so saturated in God's word and passionate to SEE and SAVOR the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ!! I relate so much to Piper and his deepest longing to fight for joy and delight in God forever!! Highly recommend this book to be read regularly but certainly outside of deep study of God's word!! Psalm 34:8

    14. The place to start if you want to read Piper, almost his mission statement. Piper is a quotable writer and I love his pursuit to emphasize God's glory. "God is most glorified when we are most satisfied in Him" is a good summary statement of the work. As well, he draws attention to the purpose of life by tweaking the Shorter Catechism just a bit, writing "Man's chief end is to glorify God by enjoying Him forever."

    15. God is supposed to be my most satisfying treasure and a delight to know. John Piper explains the principle and applies it to various aspects of Christian living: worship, loving others, Bible reading, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering. The book is filled with Bible references; Piper bases his argument on Scripture.

    16. While there are quite a few Piperisms in the book, I enjoyed it. It was the first Calvinist book I read. Made quite an impact on me.

    17. Changed my whole perception of what it means to have a relationship with God. Mind blowing. Read it.

    18. There are few books which I can honestly say have changed my life. In fact, outside of the Bible, there are four. This is one of them. I can say that this book truly changed my approach to the Christian life, helping me to see the Christian life as one in which the pursuits of happiness and glory to God are the same pursuit. John Piper taps into the obvious, yet often neglected Biblical truth that God is to be enjoyed. Not only enjoyed, but treasured. He artfully articulates the profound truth t [...]

    19. Overall, I liked this book a lot and see why so many call it life-changing. Having spent a lot of time listening to Piper's sermons online and reading Desiring God, little of this was new to me - it was more reinforcement of what I already had learned and believe than anything else. The chapter on suffering was especially helpful.

    20. Outstanding. Third reading of this. It gets better each time, though I’m still not a huge fan of the word hedonist :)

    21. I enjoyed this book. :) There was a lot of good information and was based on the Bible. Hedonism is not a term I would apply to myself, but I would like to pursue pleasure by finding my joy in God.

    22. Desiring God is a book about finding joy and satisfaction in God and God alone. Throughout the pages of the book, author John Piper teaches that the Christian need not choose between delight and duty in the spiritual walk. He offers the opinion that the only true way to glorify God is to find joy in His presence and His person. Using a multitude of Scriptures to back up his point of view, Piper introduces Christian hedonism which states that "delighting in Him [God] is the work of our lives." Pi [...]

    23. Over the last few years perhaps no other preacher, teacher or theologian has taught me as much as John Piper. For this reason I feel somewhat strange when I say it has taken me until now to fully read through his magnum opus 'Desiring God'. I'm sure, however, that others will attest to the fact that this book is not one to rip through in an afternoon. The depth of theology and the paradigm shifting presentation of the Christian's pursuit of joy in God as foundational to a Biblical understanding [...]

    24. This book has become a modern devotional classic, and it's easy to see why. With this book Piper does his best to show from Scripture that God is most glorified in us when we are most enjoying Him. You may have heard that you must do good disinterestedly, Piper says, but on the contrary Scripture tells us to obey God because it is our desire and our delight; indeed this delight is an excellent, God-glorifying motivation for us. As usual Piper takes nothing for granted, seeking to prove his argum [...]

    25. This is one of those classic books that make a difference to the world, perhaps like “Pilgrims Progress”, or “Mere Christianity”, and anyone who has not read it and applied its teaching is missing out.The main thrust of this book is that God is most glorified in me when I am most satisfied in Him. That everything we do as Christians needs to be motivated by our desire to seek pleasure in God, and in doing so, we will fulfill the requirements that God has placed on us. Christian living is [...]

    26. This is John Piper's Opus Magnum and the heartbeat of almost every other book he has written. Piper begins by quoting the opening question to the Westminster Shorter Catchism and alters it slightly to make a point. What is the whole duty of man? Instead of "To glorify God and enjoy Him forever" its To glorify God by enjoying Him forever.He then elaborates further on this with the motto which is the centerpiece of all of John Piper's ministry, that is, "God is most glorified in us when we are mos [...]

    27. Although I agreed with the book's overall message, I think it was about twice as long as it needed to be. Almost every chapter repeated the same message and included a lot of unnecessary, repetitive explanations. There was one chapter--the chapter about Love--that I really enjoyed. I think if I had read this one chapter instead of the entire book, I would have gotten more out of it.Mr. Piper writes a lot of statements that seem to be purposefully misleading, and then spends several pages explain [...]

    28. In 1996 I first read Desiring God by John Piper and at that time enjoying God and glorifying Him were new concepts to me. The whole book was a new concept and I worked through it slowly. So, when I got the opportunity to read this new version I really looked forward to it. I wanted to find out what was different about this edition and if I had changed since I first read it. I found that the book was easier for me to read this time through and that many of the concepts had become my own beliefs. [...]
